Peter and Paul

Simon the fisherman (0-64) was called as a disciple by Jesus together with his brother Andrew. Jesus called him a "rock" (Greek Pétros) on which he wanted to build his church (Matthew16, 16-19). Later, Peter traveled to Rome and worked there as a church leader. Paul (0 to 64) - then still Saul - was the son of wealthy Jewish parents from Tarsus in Asia Minor with Roman citizenship. As a result of his religious zeal, he was forced to persecute the emerging Christian church, which he considered a Jewish sect that deviated from the law. The Bible tells us that in the year 35/36, when Stephen was stoned to death, he guarded the clothes of the stoners. Saul was commissioned to lead further persecutions of Christians in Damascus, but a wonderful encounter with the risen Jesus before Damascus changed his life completely - he went from being Saul to being Paul (Acts 22:5-16; 26:12-18). In the year 64 Peter and Paul met in Rome, and together they caught the magician Simon, who fell to his death with his flying skills.
